Matt LeBlanc to Star in Showtime and BBC's Episodes

Friends star Matt LeBlanc is coming back to the small screen.

LeBlanc, who last starred in the Friends spin-off Joey, will team with Friends co-creator David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik (The Class, Mad About You) for Episodes, a single-camera send-up of the TV business. The series focuses on a British couple whose hit show is turned into a dumbed-down American sitcom starring LeBlanc, who plays himself.

"Jeffrey and David have a great idea - I love it," the 42-year-old LeBlanc said. "And I am so glad I got the part, seeing someone else play Matt LeBlanc would have been devastating."

The show-within-a-show format will allow Crane and Klarik to explore the behind-the-scenes workings of a TV show and the pitfalls of "too many cooks."

The series is a co-production of Showtime and BBC. Production on six episodes is scheduled to begin this winter in Hollywood and London. The show is slated for a 2010 debut on Showtime and BBC Two.
